How do you challenge a collection agency from extending the expiration date?

Don't make a payment from a credit report point of view, its the last date of activities in other words the last date you made the payment. They can report this from 7 years of the last payment. Keep in mind that you have the right to challenge double entries on your credit report e.g Collection and Creditors reporting twice and many collections attempt to get you to make a payment in order to extend this time. Don't if its been over two years it does not affect your credit score as much and if you are attempting to get a mortgage, pay that debt in escrow at closing. Source: Credit Bible by Phil Turner
